[ laughter ] >> if only we had a tv. >> stephanie: right or computers. here she is news goddess jacki schechner. >> secretary of defense has authorized deployment of 400 troops to man the turkey syria border. they are emphasizing this is only a defensive mission. susan rice will meet with president obama at the white house today. he has already accepted her withdraw for consideration to replace hillary clinton. she is a fighter but not at the cost of what is right with the country. the president praised her strength of character, and called the attacks on her in recent weeks unfair and misleading. the reaction to the withdrawal were short and dismissive. the behavior of certain republican senators was a disgrace on national security issues. i'm not mad at you. i'm just very disappointed. >> we have always heard that from our grade school teachers. >> stephanie: several republican senator went after rice following the attack on the consolelate in benghazi. abc pointing out
of hillary clinton's security advisory board. thank you both for joining us this evening. >> thanks for having us on. >> eliot: steve let me start with you. after the way the president had reinforced susan rice, not only saying an attack on her is an attack on me at a press conference, the scripted applause and his statements about her at a cabinet meeting just recently, this seems like such a sharp u-turn and you heard me say a few moments ago seems as though the president caved. am i wrong about that? what do you understand to be going on here? >> well, i think it was. i think susan described it accurately. she's a very capable and competent woman who would have, i think done a great job as secretary of state. that said, it is a distraction. it has been a distraction. when jonathan karl asked the president what he thought of john mccain and lindsey graham's comments, i actually happened to be hosting the meeting that that happened at, it started a spark and you had a number of senators, john barossi was one susan
